Abstract Recent evidence indicates that the 5-HT4 subtype of serotonin receptor may modulate central cholinergic activity in regions of the mammalian CNS important to memory such as the frontal cortex, hippocampus and amygdala. These receptors could represent targets for drugs designed for the symptomatic therapy of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other disorders of memory. In the present study, the binding activity of RS 17017 (previously described as a selective 5-HT4 agonist) was assessed… 
The 5‐HT4 receptor levels in hippocampus correlates inversely with memory test performance in humans
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the 5‐HT4R is associated with memory functions in the human hippocampus and potentially pharmacological stimulation of the receptor may improve episodic memory.
Translating the promise of 5HT4 receptor agonists for the treatment of depression
TLDR
Evidence from animal studies that the 5-HT4 receptor is a promising target for the treatment of depression and cognitive disorders is reviewed, and a potential pathway for the efficient and cost-effective translation of these effects into humans and, ultimately, to the clinic is outlined.
Hyperfunction of Muscarinic Receptor Maintains Long-Term Memory in 5-HT4 Receptor Knock-Out Mice
TLDR
It is suggested that adaptive changes in cholinergic systems may circumvent the absence of 5-HTR4 to maintain long-term memory under baseline conditions and, despite adaptive mechanisms, the absenceof 5- HTR4 aggravates scopolamine-induced memory impairments.

TLDR
It was concluded that the 5-HT2A receptor demonstrates constitutive activity, and that variations in this activity can produce profound alterations in cognitive states.
Dose‐specific improvements in memory‐related task performance by rats and aged monkeys administered the nicotinic‐cholinergic antagonist mecamylamine
The centrally acting nicotinic‐cholinergic antagonist mecamylamine (mec) is well documented to produce amnestic effects in animals and humans. However, in certain circumstances the compound has
Role of serotonin in memory impairment
TLDR
Converging evidence suggests that the administration of 5-HT2A/2C or 5- HT4 receptor agonists or5-HT1A or 5HT3 and 5-ht1B receptor antagonists prevents memory impairment and facilitates learning in situations involving a high cognitive demand.
Brain imaging of serotonin 4 receptors in humans with [11C]SB207145-PET
Evidence for involvement of central 5-HT(4) receptors in cholinergic function associated with cognitive processes: behavioral, electrophysiological, and neurochemical studies.
TLDR
The findings suggest that the functional interaction between the serotonergic system mediated via 5-HT(4) receptors and the cholinergic system associated with cognitive processes exists in vivo.

The 5‐HT3 receptor antagonist, RS‐56812, enhances delayed matching performance in monkeys
TLDR
While both isomers enhanced certain aspects of task performance, the (R) isomer produced more systematic improvements and this differential sensitivity to the isomers in regard to DMTS performance appears to parallel the higher 5-HT3 receptor affinity of the R enanantiomer.
Delayed Matching-to-Sample in Monkeys as a Model for Learning and Memory Deficits: Role of Brain Nicotinic Receptors
The nervous system and behavioral repertoire of old world monkeys resembles the human neuro-behavioral system more than any other laboratory animal, except higher apes. In addition, spontaneous and
5-HT3 receptors mediate inhibition of acetylcholine release in cortical tissue
TLDR
Evidence that a reduction in cortical cholinergic function can be effected in vitro by 5-HT3 receptors is provided and Radioligand binding studies show a high density of 5- HT3 receptors in theCholinergic-rich entorhinal cortex.
Basal forebrain lesions in monkeys disrupt attention but not learning and memory [published erratum appears in J Neurosci 1995 Mar;15(3): following table of contents]
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that the primate basal forebrain may be more involved in attentional than mnemonic processes, and that degeneration of neurons in the BFCS in cases of AD may contribute to the attention deficits observed in these individuals.
Identification and distribution of 5-HT3 receptors in rat brain using radioligand binding
TLDR
Direct evidence for the existence of 5-HT3 receptors in rat brain tissue and their distribution is reported, based on high affinity binding of the potent 5- HT3 receptor antagonist 3H-GR65630 to homogenates of rat entorhinal cortex.
